Up Here, Hulu’s new original musical rom-com, featuring Mae Whitman as Lindsey and Carlos Valdez as Miguel, will soon be available for viewers to enjoy. The show features 21 original songs written by renowned songwriters Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez, who have won Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony awards.
The series follows the ups and downs of Lindsey and Miguel’s relationship in New York, and all eight episodes will be available for binge-watching on March 24. The show’s soundtrack will also be released along with the series, so viewers can listen to their favorite tracks.
Anderson-Lopez and Lopez are highly acclaimed songwriters who have worked on blockbusters like Frozen, Coco, and The Book of Mormon, as well as the catchy theme songs of WandaVision.
For Up Here, they aimed to create songs that express the uncertainties of Lindsey and Miguel as they grapple with their inner voices. The musical series is said to be a passion project for the duo that took 17 years to come to fruition, and it was only through a call with Tony-winning director Tommy Kail that it finally came together. During lockdown, they focused on creating a soundtrack that would bring their long-awaited project to life.
